Cookies & Cream Mints

These mints are creamy with a bit of crunch. They were easy and fun to make and everyone loved them. They take almost no time at all to make. It's just a matter of melting, mixing, and pouring into molds. When I make candy this way I don't measure anything. I usually estimate how much chocolate to melt and as far as flavoring goes I'll taste it as I go. It's that easy.


                                           1 package green candy coating
                                           mint candy flavoring oil
                                           cookies and cream sprinkles

Pour the candy coating into a microwave safe bowl and melt at 30 second intervals, stirring after each time, until it is smooth. After it is melted you will want to add the flavoring a few drops at a time and mix it well. Be carefull with the flavoring because it doesn't take very much flavoring to get the taste that you want. Next, you are going to want to add the sprinkles. Just sprinkle in some and mix it then add more as needed. Then pour the mixture into candy molds and lightly tap the mold on a counter top until all the air bubbles are gone, and put them into the refrigerater until they are hard. I used a round disc candy mold but you can use whatever you like. After they are set turn the mold upside down and tap it on a table or counter and they should pop right out. It's so easy and they taste so good.
